Re: Astra rough idle

Hi all

It's weird the scanner didn't show any DTC related to MAF values before the fix. :roll:

So it is good to point out how Pico really helps to pinpoint glitches when the PCM criteria doesn't meet the conditions to set trouble codes. :D

Kind regards

Re: Starter solenoid noise, VW Golf Mk.6

... and following starter motor switch-off there is a decaying voltage for approximately 1second before complete shut-off to 0v. So I'm definitely going to try the new starter relay, plus measures around this, before condemning anything else. If this "decaying voltage" pattern is typical of VW's, t...

Hi I am not surprised at all with cam output voltage, try to think outside the box :roll: If the voltage battery feed source is 5 volts you get 5, so if it gets 12 volts then why not t...

Re: 1997 Plymouth Breeze SOHC Stall/ no start P0351

At the top, there is an odd dogleg that I have never seen. Hi redclift38 I haven't ever seen this dogleg at the top before, looks like a coil internal winding in short and the coil driver struggling to cope with such a high current values. Check specs for this particular coil and we'll see. Maybe 7...

Re: compression test

On this one I cannot see any issue as all the humps look uniform, so why don't you try with a exhaust cold crank test with FLS?

This test is very helpful with this issues

Re: Waste spark wave form question

Hi everybody When I compare both nose for cylinder three and four this is what I think: :wink: Oscillations in the number three shows a larger amount of energy that hasn't been consumed thoroughly by the firing event, so this suggests me that there is a slight lack of fuel in this cylinder. I would ...
